Asphalt surrounding the ride has also been torn up recently, and new trees and greenery are being planted in, while others stand-by waiting to be put into the earth.

Medusa clone or not, that thing looks awesome. A lot tighter with a smaller footprint. Look at the corkscrews... the turnaround leading into the final corkscrew looks A LOT tighter than the one on Medusa east. Of course, it could just be the angle, but it looks a lot smaller in comparison.

Should be a great ride nonetheless, and I can't wait to take a spin.

looks great. I just wanna say that, yes it is good but over a parking lot and seeing the same path of inversions in other coasters does not make it very special but still, it does look great.

Edit: Im kinda sick of these path of inversions but at least SFMM is getting another coaster

Is that final turn gonna double as a head chopper off of the first drop into the loop? Same layout or not, B&M's are darn fine nice to look at.

I really like that color scream. If you are going to get a clone you might as well get one of a great ride like Medusa.

Any sign of a station yet?

The fact that it's a clone means that the layout is NOT tighter and it doesn't fit into a smaller footprint! It's a CLONE! It's an exact mirror image.

Nothing is tighter or smaller. It's what Great Adventure's Medusa looks like while looking in the mirror.

How can you be sure until you ride it? I don't care if it's mirrored, it looks a lot smaller and tighter to me, and I've compared both photos of Scream and Medusa. All the elements look more compact and tighter. So while the layout is the same, to me it looks like Scream is more compact. So in that instance, it wouldn't be an exact clone.

Of course, I won't know either until I ride it and can compare the two coasters. Take a look at an overhead shot of Medusa on RCDB and then look at that shot of Scream, you may see what I'm seeing.

You can't look at photographs of two mirrored rides that are taken at a different perspective/angle and make a judgement like that.

There are no photographs (yet) that can truly show the any similarities or differences (if there are any) until the ride opens, and we get opportunities to photograph the ride close up.

i have an idea... but i dont have time to do it now.... why doesnt somebody count the crossties on the turnaround between corkscrews from both coasters. you'll be able to get an idea as to whether Scream's is tighter (if it has shorter length) than Medusa's.

just a crazy idea, but if you could get decent pics and make sure you count from the same spots it could work.

Well, that's why I said in my first post that it could just be the angle of the shots I've seen. From that posted shot versus the overhead shot of Medusa, I saw something different. I guess it's my eyes... ;) I realize that there won't be any way to tell until the coaster is ridden.

I love how twisted and compact it is after the MCBR - looks like a good product for something thats a little less than what we've been used to in the last few years (nothing record-breaking or completely new)

Looks nice, but I didn't see any parking lot being torn up.

I agree that it looks tighter than Medusa East, but again it could be just the angle. I could care less if it is a clone. Medusa is the best ride at Great Adventure and hardly anyone on the west coast will know that it even exists. Like it was said earlier, MM just receicved a ride that will be a crowd pleaser and very reliable and that is never a bad thing. (I am not saying anyone said it was.)

It's a clone, people. Why would B&M bother to make the ride any different? And why would SFMM pay for that? They ordered an exact clone (mirrored) to save on design costs. It's *not* tighter or more compact. Use your head.

-Nate (who can't believe people *still* argue it's not a clone!)

Like everybody is saying, it is a clone, but given that Medusa East was the first floorless, Scream might be a little revised and tweaked a bit.
